College Tour Opportunities

College tours in the summer can be a great opportunity to meet with both professors and get a first-hand look at college campuses.

What are College Tours?

College tours are your first-hand view of what a college or what your college is. During these tours, visitors are given a tour of the campus, dining halls, students dorms, on-campus apartments (if there are any) and other areas that students like to visit during their time on campus as well as some of the classrooms. Before my sister was admitted to Towson University I went on a college tour with her, from my experience the tour is both very informative for the parents and the upcoming students who would be attending that following year. College tours are definitely worth going on so you know what you’re working with and to also have a feel of the campus. Here are some summer tours being offered:

  • East College Tours is offering 7 day trip around the eastern coast for students to tour various colleges around the East Coast.
  • HBCU College Tours is allowing students the opportunity to visit various HBCU’s from June 11th-23rd with separate tours. For more information visit: Link
  • DreamBigYouthTravel
  • Here is a link to another website that is also offering various college tours as well: ExploreAmerica


Research the college beforehand and make preparations for a visit
Take a virtual tour of the campus before you go some sites like CampusTours and ECampusTours
Speak with a student on campus to get their perspective on campus life
Leave a good impression by sending a thank you email for the opportunity.
